IAI Awarded NASA Contract to Develop a Design-Optimization Architecture

ROCKVILLE, Md.—June 25, 2021—Intelligent Automation, Incorporated (IAI), a technology innovation company, announced today that it has been awarded a contract by NASA to develop a design-optimization architecture for urban air mobility (UAM) aircraft.

In this contract, IAI will develop a design tool that properly accounts for the complex interactions between a flexible structure and the steady and unsteady aerodynamic forces acting on the structure. This approach will maintain optimal performance while ensuring freedom from aeroelastic and aeroservoelastic instabilities.

“Aeroelastic prediction and testing methods are critical for new vehicle concepts and IAI is proud to support NASA in this effort,” said Vikram Manikonda, President and CEO of IAI.

IAI has extensive experience in design analysis, optimization, flight dynamics, and control techniques for complex systems. In developing this technology, IAI will leverage its extensive experience in air traffic management and machine learning to develop prediction and simulation tools.
